'Avengers: Infinity War' Writer Has Message For All Korg Fans

Many a Marvel fan fell in love with the delightful Korg in Thor: Ragnarok, but according to the Marvel Studios team, his future doesn't look so bright.

That, of course, stems from the events right at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War, which picked up right at the end of Thor: Ragnarok. The Asgardian's ship was boarded by Thanos and his Black Order, and fans saw plenty of bodies on the floor from their savagery. Heimdall, Loki, and more were all killed, but fans did not see what happened to Korg. In the Infinity War commentary, the team of Director Joe Russo and writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus give it a more insight into Korg's plight.

"I think we should say that several Asgardians have escaped," McFeely said, giving fans some hope to hold onto that Korg, Valkyrie, and maybe a few others made it out.

Russo seconds that note, confirming Valkyrie made it out alive. "Several Asgardians have escaped," Russo said. "I have gone on record saying Valkyrie has escaped with some of the Asgardians."

Markus though ends things on a downer, telling fans "All I can say is pray for Korg."

It would be a shame to lose Korg after only one film, as he was easily one of the best things about Thor: Ragnarok. His hilarious dialogue and adorable mannerisms quickly endeared him to fans, and some were hoping he would show up in Avengers 4 or beyond. Looks like those chances are now in jeopardy, but hopefully, he makes it through unscathed.
